The 37-year-old Russian goalie was pulled over Feb. 8 after his Ferrari was clocked at 70 mph in a 45-mph zone. Police said an officer smelled alcohol and Khabibulin was arrested after a field sobriety test.
He was convicted on three counts last month, received a minimum 30-day sentence, was fined $5,100 and ordered to enroll in an alcohol-treatment program. His lawyer immediately appealed.
Khabibulin played for Phoenix from 1996-99.
The Oilers opened camp Friday.
